Description

The Chinese juniper, Juniperus chinensis, is one of the classic Japanese bonsai subjects.

The Chinese juniper, Juniperus chinensis, is one of the classic Japanese bonsai subjects. Very often created to highlight 3 main elements in the design, significant deadwood both in the form of shari on the trunk and jinned branches, prominent live vein displaying the characteristic chestnut red coloured bark and green foliage areas arranged to best give prominence to the other two elements. Of course, personal preference allows you to create a bonsai to your own taste which may or may not incorporate all or just some of the aforementioned features.

This Juniper is one of the great many garden varieties that exist and are sold in Garden centres for garden use. The tree has been used together with a hand-made concrete slab to create a sort of landscape effect. In addition to the juniper there is a small alpine garden type of plant and some low growing moss. The tree itself is quite a simple bonsai with the three foliage areas a sinuous tapering trunk and a small jin. Overall the tree has a height of 34cm. and a spread of 25cm. At the base the trunk diam. is 3cm. The slab measurement is 40x28cm. and it already has a quite weathered appearance.
